Swell........

One week of the holidays gone already. The children had their dentist and optometrist appointments, so good to have that over and finished for another little while. Very expensive day out. Both children needed new glasses but thankfully only a check and a clean at the dentist. $1000 gone like that - so much for private cover - glad to get a little back, even if it is only about 30%!!!!

Alexandra has her Winter Ballet School for the next three afternoons. The ballet school has a visiting teacher and gives the girls just a little extra preparation for the upcoming exam.




Last Friday night, I whipped up a new bag for myself. I just love the Urban Chiks fabrics in this one. They are very Swell...... I am loving their new range too - Sweet. This is made with the Melly and Me pattern Sherbet. I did change the handles as the first time I used this pattern I didn't really enjoy doing the handles as suggested.



I have been having fun making large covered buttons for some other projects I have on the go at the moment. I think this big button really sets the bag off.
I have been setting up an Etsy store - now just to get some items in there to sell. Fun....
Off to the sewing room for awhile now. Some more fabricy fun.......

Staying healthy is not cheap but your children are blessed to have parents that look after there well being. But we wish that our insurance could pay a bit more.

Love the bag and the fabric is beautiful. What a fun project. I have not done a covered button in years.
